19 Virginia Tech @ 8 North Carolina

Game time: 12:00 pm EST

Venue: Kenan Stadium – Chapel Hill, NC

Network: ABC

Line: UNC – 5.0

The Virginia Tech Hokies will take on the North Carolina Tarheels this weekend in NC and it is likely to be one of the most entertaining games of the weekend. This game is one of the just four ranked vs ranked matchups of the weekend. Both teams have begun the season 2-0 but they have yet to face another ranked team. This game will likely pose a challenge to both defenses but I envision the Hokies defense holding up stronger. Virginia Tech will grab the first upset of the weekend and prove that they are one of the top teams in the ACC. 

Prediction: 27 – 23 Virginia Tech

22 Texas @ Oklahoma

Game time: 12:00 pm EST

Venue: Cotton Bowl – Dallas, Texas

Network: FOX

Line: Oklahoma – 2.5

The Texas vs Oklahoma game is another one of the top games of the weekend, but it could very well be the toughest to predict. Both teams have failed to live up to expectations this season and it’s arguable that neither deserves to be ranked. The Oklahoma Sooners began the season ranked in the top 4 but have now lost 2 in a row and are going downhill. The Texas Longhorns are 2-1 on the season but lost their last game to TCU after barely escaping Texas Tech in an OT thriller the week before. This game has the potential to be the most fun game to watch this weekend but I think that the fun will be spoiled for Oklahoma as Texas will hand them their third straight loss.

Prediction: 38 – 27 Texas

Arkansas @ 13 Auburn

Game time: 4:00 pm EST

Venue: Jordan-Hare Stadium – Auburn, AL

Network: SECN

Line: Auburn – 13.5

The Auburn vs Arkansas game will display two teams with a lot to prove. The Arkansas Razorbacks are 1-1 on the season and are coming off of a win vs previously ranked, Mississippi State. The Auburn Tigers are 1-1 as well, but they have had a much tougher schedule. The Tigers have played both Georgia and Kentucky in their first two weeks and they split the two games, losing to Georgia last week and beating Kentucky in week 1. I believe that this game will be a lot more competitive then it is anticipated to be but the Auburn Tigers will still walk away with the win. 

Prediction: 24 – 16 Auburn
